view from the upstairs outside balcony.

It's a sleepy, drizzling, overcast day here

Don't have anything on the agenda

I think it's time again

 for me to

count some more blessings!

I know I'll never get finished

but at least I can start!

Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Let's go!! 

1. The gift of time to do just what He lays upon my heart
2. An answer to prayer - our d-i-l got a job
3. A godly friend is now in the Presence of Whom he believed
4. Opportunity to carry grieving, loved ones in prayer
5. New friends in blogland

You are welcome to join:

Oh how right you are to be counting our blessings. For some reason, the human nature I guess, to to sometimes get overwhelmed by the burdens that we feel we are under. So that all it takes is just a little adjustment of our thoughts and feelings to get back on the right path. Of course that can only happen with God's abundant graces out there for us. So enjoy having you stop by and visiting you here. Always an encouraging word. Blessings

I enjoy seeing the view from your terrace! It seems to be really flat where you live! It does look like a dismal day! A great day to count blessings. You are one of my blessings, as a new blog friend. Your wonderful encouraging comments are like a breath of fresh air!

What a wonderful thing -- to count our blessings each and every day -- or possibly several times a day!

Good advice! Counting my blessings is a daily ritual with me because it's easy to forget that there are millions of people who are way worse of than oneself!

I grew up with the Baptist Hymnal firmly placed in hand during church. I enjoyed your post and reading all your blessing.

The song is so right when we do look back we are somtimes surprised what the Lord has done. It's good to give Him all the honor and glory.

PS Enjoy your rain.
